Health Tip: Prepare for Your Child's Dental Procedure

Health Tip: Prepare for Your Child's Dental Procedure

(HealthDay News) -- The American Dental Association suggests you ask these questions of your dentist before your child's office procedure.

  • Who will provide the preoperative evaluation of my child, including taking a full medical history?

  • How long before the office visit should my child avoid food or drink?

  • Will my child take sedating medication at home before the procedure? If so, how should I monitor the child?

  • What experience does the sedation provider have? Does this experience meet guidelines from the American Dental Association?

  • Does staff assisting in the procedure have current training in emergency resuscitation?
